I wanted to give you positive feedback on your page: I added it to my bookmarks
because it's been such a help! Last summer I started to put together hiking resources
for the hiking club I started up, and with spring right around the corner I'm motivated to
get going again! I've been using some of the information from your page as inspiration
for my own online "handbook."

As my way of saying thank you, I thought I'd suggest another resource one of my fellow
hikers sent me. I figured it would fit with the content on your page and you and/or your
web visitors may find it useful. It's called
"The Ultimate Hiking Guide"
https://www.letshangout.com/content-the-ultimate-hiking-guide.php

It's got some great hiking tips and info. If you end up adding it and want to mention our
club, that'd be great, I'm sure our members would love to hear how our group is
connecting with other hiking groups in other regions.

Hope I could help and keep in touch! :-)

Happy Trails!

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Leave No Trace
"In this great
wilderness, leave
no more trace of
your passing, than
a bird through the
sky, or a fish in
the water."
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning
to find out that going to the mountains is going home that wildness is
a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not
only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as of over-industry
and the deadly apathy of luxury, they are trying as best they can to mix
and enrich their own little ongoings with those of Nature, and to get rid
of rust and disease.”
                                                                         – John Muir
From: “Our National Parks” (published December, 1900)
         .                                                               ....It is even more so today!
